Pendant with carvacrol in 1.2 mm silver wire.
Carvacrol is a warm spicy flavour found in oregano. Oregano is one of the spices that can handle drying. However, the molecule carvacrol doesn’t withstand long heating, which is one reason why oregano is sprinkled over the pizza only when it’s ready-baked.
Oregano can have antiviral effect. The substance carvacrol in oregano attacks the proteins that protect the winter vomiting virus, norovirus.
